Amazon UK Names Mario Kart 8 As Their Game Of 2014

We all love Mario Kart 8 and it seems that the guys and girls over at Amazon UK share your sentiment as they have named Mario Kart 8 as their game of 2014. The popular online retailer says that it’s the perfect game to gather round and have fun with the family. Amazon UK also named Mario Kart 8 as a system seller. Hopefully this will help the game shift more units in the United Kingdom.

Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker For Nintendo 3DS Will Cost $50 On Amazon

Popular online retailer Amazon has begun listing Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker for Nintendo 3DS. While this isn’t surprising in itself, what is surprising is that it will retail for the premium price of $50. Generally Nintendo 3DS games retail for around the $40 mark at the online retailer. Atlus has already revealed that the game nearly doubles the amount of content of the original Devil Survivor 2, but hasn’t explained why it costs more. Here’s some details.

  • Tactical Combat with a Side of Demon Fusion: The elements that make the Devil Survivor series great are back and better than ever with robust, turn-based strategic combat.
  • Choose Your Own Fate: The line between life and death is razor-thin. Actions have their consequences, and in the wake of the apocalypse, a wrong choice can result in the permanent death of a character.
  • New Personalities to Discover: For the first time, Devil Survivor 2 is getting fully voiced English story dialogue.

Amazon UK Apparently Cancelling Remaining Super Smash Bros For Wii U With GameCube Adapter Due To Stock Issues

Several people have contacted me to say that they’ve been notified by Amazon UK that they have seemingly cancelled most, if not all, outstanding pre-orders on Super Smash Bros for Wii U with the GameCube Adapter. The retailer initially said that they would have more stock in on December 19th, but now the retailer has been cancelling the orders stating that this is due to insufficient stock. Seems like Nintendo neglected to manufacture enough GameCube adapters. There’s also a shortage of them in the United States.

Thanks, Jason and others.

Amazon France Lists ZombiU 2 For Next Year

Despite Ubisoft saying they weren’t planning to release a sequel to ZombiU due to poor sales of the original on Wii U, Amazon France is now listing ZombiU 2. The listing on Amazon France has since been removed but it mentioned that the game will be set in New York and is set to be distributed by Bandai Namco. Let’s hope something comes of it as the original is looked upon fondly by Wii U owners.
